THIS IS MPLS: SOUNDS OF UNDERAGE MINNEAPOLIS 2003-2008


A killer three band comp that a F.O.T.E. sent in so long ago that  it is positively shameful that I am just now sharing the jams with you. Mini discographies put together with love from THE AGENDA, DAISY'S COMPACT MICE and FRIENDLY. All three bands had tracks on the Life Of Monotony comp that appeared here some time ago (and most of those tracks made it onto this mix), but this tape includes live radio stints, demos and vinyl releases as well. While I'm sure that there was a lot more to Minneapolis during this era, this is a great glimpse into a small scene...and DAISY'S COMPACT MICE are absolutely an unheralded gem of mid '00s Midwest punk (fukk man, those vocals are unreal) and they should be celebrated, even if you find yourself a little late to the party.

file blocked for violation said mediafire....
looks like those dumb wankers didn't enjoy the word "underage" in the title name

FUCKERS. The probability of downloading this tape is inversely proportional to the magnitude of my penile tumescence.

I'LL BE BACK.

If you enjoyed the vocals of DAISY'S COMPACT MICE you should check out Tina's other band PERMANENT VACATION. Other members of DAISY'S COMPACT MICE are currently touring around in bands like TEENAGE MOODS, and KITTEN FOREVER. Also members of FRIENDLY went on to create FROZEN TEENS, FALSE and a multitude of other gems! Its funny that you posted on this tape on this day because there was a reunion show that night for a bunch of bands that came out of a teen club in minneapolis where these bands flourished! Needless to say it was a little weird but probably way cooler than any high school reunion! also it was a good thing we were all over legal drinking age....

File re-zipped, re-named and re-uploaded. Downloads with no issues, and I can see that several dozen of you have already started enjoying. Sorry for the trouble with this one...

Aww man... it's already gone again.
I've been checking back every day for it since it initially went down.
Think you can help a brother out ONE MORE TIME?

By the way, I'm thinking about using zippyshare more - used it the last 2 posts I made on my own blog - due to meidafire blocking everything all of a sudden...

Downloads just fine for me, and after hearing your description of Daisy's Compact Mice and the other high praises here, I can't wait to listen!
Cheers and thank you for all this music!!

The L-RV said...

Thanks again for the re-up (again), etc.

Yeeargh it's already gone AGAIN!
I've never seen this tape in real life, did Tim put it out? Can't wait to hear it.

Damn, already gone AGAIN!
Can I email you for the files or something?

Not sure what the problem is with this particular post, but I just re-zipped, re-named and re-uploaded it for a fourth time, even though Mediafire indicated no issues with the file and I was able to download without difficulty from two different computers.

@Wil O - I don't think this tape was released in this form. All the tracks are from various demos, sessions and records. The tape was assembled and sent to me by a F.O.T.E. (Friend Of The Escape) whose efforts are appreciated but whose name I cannot remember at the moment.

@ Wil, Tim made this last year.
